Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

I have a few...hundred suggestions. Any specific genre you're looking for? Vegetarian? Indian? Moroccan? If you're looking for an all-around well-tested classic, you've picked up a good one.

How about Chinese?   I never get to fix my Chinese craving without actually going to a Chinese restaurant and I wish I could satisfy my urges better than what I've done in the past. 

 

I do use good rice, which makes a huge difference.  I've had Japanese and Korean exchange students as roomates in college and they say that the biggest influence on their food in the U.S. is making sure they have properly prepared rice.

Re: Favorite cookbook recommendation

I know people really like The Thousand Recipe Chinese Cookbook:

 

 

 

Also, I've worked with Nina Simonds, an American woman who has written extensively about Chinese cooking. Here is one of her books, and here's a link to the complete list.

 

Classic Chinese Cooking

 

 

I hope that helps. Also, regarding Add Product, yep, we're working on that for an upcoming redesign. You can add an image by clicking on that tree icon, and you copy a link to an image by double clicking and highlighting copy image address. Then I add a link over the text so that you can link to the site.

 

Sorry about that!
